  • "Fabulous house, spotlessly clean, very comfortable, ideal location and would highly recommend."

  • "Brilliant place to stay as so convenient for everywhere in Keswick."

    House was spotlessly clean, had more than enough of everything (crockery, glassware, loo rolls, towels, cleaning products, dishwasher tablets etc), plus treats for the dog! Comfy beds with snuggly duvets, log burners - all great for our stay. We have stayed in many properties and this is easily one of the best. We shall be booking this home again! Thanks to Les and Jan for making our stay a real holiday break.

  • "The cottage is fabulous!"

    So stylish, modern and clean. We had a wonderful few days staying here and exploring The Lakes. The owners make it clear they are always contactable should you need them and they leave an array of little treats for the guests - even for the dogs! The only thing that we found as a negative is that I wouldn’t say this cottage is ideal for dogs as it has no enclosed garden or yard, so even early morning and late night wees have to be on a lead in the back lane after navigating many bins that are stored there - seeing as we had fabulous weather this was ok, but not ideal on rainy days. But, overall, we were so comfortable and happy to be staying here.

  • "This was the best holiday cottage we have stayed at - perfect cottage, clean, modern and far more than we expected."

    Little extras were lovely. Can not rate highly enough

  • "We were very pleased with the property, very clean and very well appointed."

    As a side note; a bigger rack for boots and somewhere more substantial to hang wet outdoor clothing would have been very useful - a standard bath with a rail over would have been a better option than the roll top bath. In terms of items provided an indoor broom would have been handy for tiled floors. With this said we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and did appreciate the quality of this property.

  • "Absolutely amazing house!"

    Home from home, we didn't want to leave! 5 minute walk into Keswick a bonus, so no taxis. We will 100% stay again and will absolutely recommend to friends and family.

  • "Fantastic house with great decoration and first class finish throughout, only little niggle was the step down into the kitchen at an angle which meant we couldn’t use the child gate to stop our granddaughter from tottering up and down the step with assistance, only a minor inconvenience in an otherwise superb house with a great location in Keswick, I would highly recommend this house."

  • "We had a great week in our cottage."

    Everything was there that we needed. My only point is the lighting in the living room is either too bright with the downlighting and too dark with only one small lamp in the living room. Apart from that is was perfect
